Esports caster and analyst Christopher ‘MonteCristo’ Mykles announced that he won’t be part of the Overwatch League’s upcoming season.

MonteCristo has been a caster and analyst for the Overwatch League since its first season. On December 31, Monte made the announcement on Twitter and gave his own explanation to the reason behind leaving the Overwatch League.

“I would like to announce that today is the last day of my @overwatchleague contract and I will not be returning next year,” Monte wrote. “Although I had a great time helping to develop and launch the league in the first two seasons, I am leaving to pursue further career growth.”

Monte stated that the reason for walking away is “irreconcilable creative and philosophical differences” between him and the league caused by the departure of Commissioner Nate Nanzer in May 2019.

Monte also said that he won’t be making Overwatch related content anymore but wished the Overwatch League success in their third season.

He assured his fans that he will continue producing esports content, as many opportunities have been granted to him but didn’t reveal details.

“I will not only continue to perform as on-camera talent, but I will also broaden my skill-set as a creative director and producer,” Monte said. “I will be able to share more details on my new projects in the coming weeks.”

It’s exciting to learn about what Monte’s future plans are in 2020 in the esports scene, we’ll keep you updated on everything Monte reveals in the upcoming weeks.
